Lochside 1972 The Last Drop 44 Year Old with Miniature
Lochside was founded in 1957, however single malt vintages only date from the early to mid-1960s and from the early 1980s as its Spanish owners in the intervening period, Destilerias y Crianzas (DYC), used its malt exclusively for export blends. Prior to this it was in the hands of Joseph Hobbs who had operated both pot and a coffey still, blending both malt and grain at birth for the distillery's Sandy MacNab brand. Some of these "blended at birth" casks have subsequently been bottled by independent labels. The practice stopped with Hobbs' death in 1964, and the distillery exclusively produced malt until it eventually closed in 1992.
Distilled in 1972, it matured in second fill american oak cask #346 for 44 years before being discovered and bottled 106 bottles by The Last Drop Distillers Ltd.
Complete with stopper and miniature.
